Kamala Harris Left Nearly Speechless When Reporter Asks Her A Simple Question (VIDEO)

Kamala Harris was quick to jump into the Jussie Smollett story when it broke. She had no trouble believing that the black gay man was a victim of violence from Trump supporters.

Now that it’s looking like the whole thing was a hoax, she doesn’t have much to say. A reporter asked her about on Monday and she looked like a deer in headlights.

Harris Freezes, Laughs Awkwardly When Asked About Calling Smollett Incident a ‘Modern-Day Lynching’

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) froze and awkwardly looked around when pressed Monday on her tweet that the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett was a “modern-day lynching,” before saying she needed to see all the facts.

Smollet, a gay, black actor, claimed he was the victim of a hate crime in January, saying two men beat him up in a Chicago street, poured bleach on him and placed a rope around his neck. He also said they yelled, “This is MAGA country,” a reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The story has taken a turn, with police now reportedly investigating whether Smollett orchestrated the attack himself by paying two Nigerian brothers to do it.

She praised the actor as “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know” and said “this was an attempted modern day lynching.”
